Blefari has Belgian Chocolate

Blefari have been writing their specialist single origin coffees on the sandwich board outside this the Café in Victoria Square. Recently your reviewer noticed that Callebaut hot chocolate was being advertised on this board. Callebaut is the most popular maker of Belgian hot chocolate even though according to Wikipedia, the company has been taken over by a Swiss company.

The hot chocolate was indeed a good Belgian chocolate flavour. The cost was $3.70 and it was an improvement on the Blefari's already good standard of hot chocolate.

Thai Orchid

The Thai Orchid is well-established Adelaide Thai Restaurant. It is blessed by a wonderful view of the sea at Henley Beach. This is an ideal place to watch the sun setting. They provide and extensive menu of tasty Thai food and provide friendly table service.

The hot chocolate came in a glass and saucer. The glass had a napkin expertly wrapped around it to preserve my fingertips. The saucer had an ornate brass tea spoon which matched the other Thai Orchid cutlery. The hot chocolate was topped with light bubbly froth and sprinke of chocolate powder. This was a good hot chocolate as it was rich but not too sweet. The cost was unkown as the meal was bought for me by some generous visitors from overseas.

A Mother's Milk

The name of this café comes from a quote about coffee and there is some information on their facebook page. It is at 105 Unley Road. The Décor is rustic with exposed brick and stressed timber and the seating is in a number of small rooms and out on the verandah.

A Mother's Milk provides good Belgian hot chocolate. It was served in a brown cup and saucer topped with a white froth and sprinkle of chocolate powder. The cost was only $3.30.
